I wasn't sure where to ask this but I'll just ask in here. I've been searching for a CD of the UEFA Champions League anthem as performed originally by the the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and the Academy of St. Martin Chorus. AFAIK the anthem was ever released commercially. Anybody got a suggestion on how I might obtain one? It's played before every Champions leage match so the clubs must have a CD or a digital copy of it.
According to the Wiki article, it has never been officially released. However, there used to be a link to an MP3 on that page, which I assumed was legit, as it was there for ages. Seems to have disappeared now though.

Using Archive.org on that wiki page leads to this link (which works).

^ Thanks ST. It's not a lossless version but it's better than nothing.

So basically I am out of luck other than sneaking into one of the European football clubs and steal the anthem CD?

Will the Brian Clough trophy ever leave Pride Park?

^^ No. No it won't......

We'll have to organise a 'friendly' or two next year, seeing as Forest will be in League One again.

Seriously, men against boys yesterday.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

I'm not convinced Forest are going down. I find it difficult to ever predict who goes up or down from the Championship and League One, but I'm reasonably confident Charlton, Southampton and either Plymouth or Barnsley are going to go.

Don't even talk to me about going up, though. Cardiff have conceded stupidly late equalisers away to all three of their biggest promotion rivals despite outplaying them all for all 270 minutes. Come the end of the season those lost 6 points are going to hurt us, I know it. I can't handle the play-offs I just can't - every year the team least likely to win wins i.e. Derby, Watford, Hull, West Ham.

It hurts so much right now.

Even my friend who's a Forest fan said it was Men against boys, I suspect that there'll be three teams worse than Forest come the end of the season, but I think it'll be tight.

I'm glad Clough is still saying we need more points to be safe, nice to see he's not got us resting on our laurels. We do seem to be picking up a few injuries of late however, and I think Play off talk is premature!

Cardiff are still in the play off places, and as for the team least likely winning the POs, whilst everyone said WBA were the better side, it#s worth remembering that Derby finished third by some margin that year. We weren't in great form, but on points we were the third best team in the league that year

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

^^ We'd also already beaten WBA at Pride Park and should never have lost at their place, a flukey 90th minute goal from fat twat Hartson.

Have to say, I'm not entirely convinced that Forest will escape. They're one of a bunch of teams that could very easily get dragged down.

Personally, I hope they stay up. Derby matches add a little spice to the season, and with bragging rights on offer as well, it would be disappointing not to have the annual fixtures.

Looking at the table, I think that Charlton are almost gone already, and both Plymouth and Blackpool will join them on current form. I can see Southampton and Norwich escaping.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Completely agree, would hate not to be able to beat forest next season, besides the East Midlands needs more success (just so long as we're the most succesful).

Obviously we'll only play them next season before we get promoted

Yeah only a miracle would save Charlton.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Promotion next season? You've written off the playoffs this year then?

Think you're right though, we left it a little too late unfortunately. Shame though, had we started the season how we're playing now we'd probably have been right up there. With Brum, Wolves and Reading all wobbling I'd have fancied our chances to be honest.

Still, next season's going to be interesting. Look at what NC's done with the squad we already have, just imagine when he can get in a few players who he wants. Even better!

Can hardly believe the resurgence of Robbie Savage. A month ago he was all but gone and we were trying to flog him to anyone and everyone. Now, midfield maestro/general/lynchpin!

Savage, Zero to Hero, what a difference a month makes!

In many ways we needed Paul Jewell, he brought in some very good players in hindsight, and provided a buffer between Daivies and premier league failure meaning that Nigel now gets a clean sheet to start with.

Don't think it's beyond the realms of possibility for us to make the play offs, but I think next season is a better time to go for it, I want Clough to have time to build his team, the last thing we need is another panic promotion. Hopefully Nigel won't bring that many extra players in in the summer, four of five, and we can offload 10 or 12...

Always liked Clough, even though he didn't really work out at Liverpool. I hope he does well.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Was he that unsuccesful at Liverpool? I always got the feeling he didn't set the world on fire, but wasn't terrible or anything.

One thing I often wonder, he dropped down to Burton when he was only about 32, was that a concious decision to get away from the pressures of top flight, or injuries meaning he couldn't compete at the higher level anymore? Some players just seem to lose their edge almost over night. I remember it was that way with Gabbiadini, one minute he's in the Prem with us, next thing you know he's tumbling down the leagues, and he was only early thirties as well.

He wasn't unsuccessful as such, but wasn't the new Dalglish or Beardsley replacement we hoped. Scored two goals against Man United, but didn't really make a massive impression, with just nine goals in total.

It's one of those big "what ifs" - Platini and Houllier recommended Cantona to Souness, but he didn't want players who would cause him problems, so signed Clough instead. He joins the legions of players Souness thought weren't good enough for Liverpool, like Keane and Pallister. He thought Istvan Kozma, Dean Saunders and Torben Piechnik were far superior.
